I think it was rather generous, even though I already have all 3 games they're offering. No reason to hate them for it.
Yea that's it. Because they got to play a very anticipated game in advance they get more treats because of that? Just doesn't make any sense. It's not like the players in the alpha had to do some work or give some long reports to dice. They really didn't have to do anything.

It's almost like getting a reward for getting a reward.

Exactly. Of course that would take reading the thread, which it appears no one does on this board. This, people complaining BF3 won't come to Steam (the thread is a horrible title, but responses show why it's not correct), People stating Karkand is just a map pack, etc.

I already have all these games and kind of want the hard copy of BF3 (which I already have pre-ordered for 50 on newegg). I could get the PC version of MoH and sell the PS3 one, but that's not a very good game anyway (I already turned it down for 10 bucks on Steam) and I think I would need to keep the PS3 disc to play the HD Frontline. ... but Would also get the other perks of pre-ordering from Origin... but I don't want to pre-order from Origin.

I would think about getting it if I could pay now and play around with MoH before the game comes out but you may not be able to download the bonus game until BF3 comes out and your purchase is complete.

People getting the games of free should NOT complain.
Many of us have anticipated and really tried to get alpha~ but missed out.
I would gladly accept a key of any of the keys mentions above.

Origin is like £10 more expensive than what I've already preordered for and put a deposit on.

Can I get the freebies without having to overpay £10 for a digital copy?

It amazes me how much PC gamers complain about free things.

DICE includes Back to Karkand = cue whining
EA includes pre-order incentives = cue whining
EA includes free games as pre-order bonus = cue whining

Seriously?
